AND DIRECTOR OF THE SUMMER SESSION 



The Audio-Visual Aids Service was estab- 
lished in 1932, as a means of furthering the 
use of such aids in reinforcing the instruc- 
tional programs of the schools of Illinois. This 
was at a time when the movement for using 
such aids was in its infancy. It resulted from 
requests by the school people themselves, who 
asked the University to create a lending li- 
brary of educational films, slides, and record- 
ings. The University entered upon this 
program with no intention of making a profit, 
but of using any receipts above operation 
costs for the enlargement of the collection and 
the strengthening of the Service; this we have 
done and will continue to do. The response, 
through the years, on the part of the school 
people has resulted in the first of such libraries 
in Illinois being the largest, and, I believe, 
the one of greatest usefulness. 

Modern education is not limited to the 
schools alone, and the public libraries have 
become great borrowers of the Service, 
through the cooperation of the Illinois State 
Library. So, too, have adult education groups. 

Mr. Smith and the members of the staff of 
the Service work very hard, indeed, to meet 
all the calls promptly and efficiently; and we 
are pleased by the ready willingness of most 
everyone to understand why booking requests 
cannot always be filled just as requested. The 
per- cent of requests that are filled is very 
high. 

I want to thank the many users of the 
Service who, unsolicited, have written me of 
their satisfaction with the Service. 

All of us in the business of education must 
remain alert to discover the ways of using 
new tools in teaching and learning, so as to 
put them to their greatest usefulness. All of 
us have much yet to learn, but the motion 
picture, the recording, and other modern aids 
have demonstrated their values beyond dis- 
pute when properly used. Like the automo- 
bile, they are here to stay.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 

The Audio-Visual Aids Service will assist any- 
one planning to use films or slides for a meeting. 
An experienced Special Programs Consultant will 
advise in choosing films, getting equipment, and 
preparing program notes. 

SCHOOLS 

We will help arrange special programs for as- 
semblies, school club meetings, or a planned series 
of educational films. 

COMMUNITY GROUPS 

Program chairmen of service clubs will find the 
Program Consultant ready to assist them in plan- 



ning either a single program or a series, based upon 
films, slides, or transcriptions. 

ACCOUNTS 

To facilitate ease in the handling of accounts, 
the Accounting Department has asked us to make 
the following request of our patrons: If you order 
films only occasionally, and the amount of the 
individual order is under five dollars, please submit 
the correct amount of service charges with the 
order. Please be sure to include postage and insur- 
ance charges in accordance with the rate schedule 
in the section on General Instructions. 



GUIDE TO AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS 



Any out-of-state group may use the films at the 
regular service charges. Application should be 
made directly to Audio-Visual Aids Service, 203 
Arcade Building, Champaign, Illinois. 

SUGGESTIONS 

The Audio-Visual Aids Service welcomes com- 
ments from the users of its service. Would you 
suggest : 

1. New audio-visual materials which should be 
added to the loan collections? 

2. Additional bibliographies which should be 
prepared ? 

3. Changes in the Index classifications? 

4. Any other changes?

TIPS ON FILM CARE 

The following tips on film care will help prolong 
the life of films and will make it possible to give 
better service to all patrons. 

1. Clean projector film gate and all moving 
parts with which the film comes in contact 
before threading projector. Most film damage 
occurs because of scratching during pro- 
jection. 

2. Do not use sound films on a silent projector. 

3. Turn some of the film through by hand (or 
with short starts) to check threading and to 
insure proper operation before running the 
film. 

4. Let your fingers ride lightly on the film occa- 
sionally as it passes through the projector. If 
unusual noise or punctures in the film de- 
velop, stop projector immediately and re- 
thread. 

5. Stay by projector at all times when film is 
being projected. 

6. If film breaks occur, return film with explana- 
tory note which indicates section in which 
damage occurs. Under no circumstances 
should film be patched with pins, tape, or 
other materials. 

7. Keep films away from excessive heat or 
moisture. 

8. Do not splice films together to provide con- 
tinuous shows. If this service is desired, make 
the request at the time film is booked. 



DEVELOPMENT OF THE SERVICE 

The Audio-Visual Aids Service began in 1932, 
as a depository for a few schools exchanging films 
cooperatively. The entire area occupied by the 
service was a cloak room in University High 
School. Within the next three years the Audio- 
Visual Aids Service had a rapid growth. As the 
cooperative arrangement and organization was 
suited to the use of only a few schools, it could 
not handle many additional patrons satisfactorily. 
Beginning in the fall of 1937 this cooperative fea- 
ture was discontinued and film service was offered 
to schools on a rental plan which has proved more 
satisfactory to all concerned. 

Since then, as a part of the Division of Univer- 
sity Extension, and with the cooperation of hun- 
dreds of schools in Illinois and elsewhere, the 
Audio- Visual Aids Service has grown until it has 
become one of the largest Audio- Visual libraries in 
the United States. 

In addition to being a depository of audio-visual 
materials, the Audio-Visual Aids Service is also a 
convenient source of information about the utiliza- 



tion and acquisition of the newer teaching devices. 
Recently, the service inaugurated a library of tape 
recordings. A listing of the titles of master tapes 
available for reproduction is included in this 
Guide. When patrons wish to take advantage of 
this service, they send a blank tape to the Audio- 
Visual Aids Service, specifying which master tape 
they wish to have reproduced. The master tape is 
recorded on the blank and the tape returned to the 
patron. For further information see the Tapes for 
Teaching section of this Guide. 

We look forward to a continuation of the many 
pleasant associations we have had with schools, 
with civic organizations, and with just people. 

KIND AND SIZE OF FILMS DISTRIBUTED 

All films are of the 16 mm dimension. Most film 
subjects are on 16 mm sound film. 

All films loaned by the Audio-Visual Aids Serv- 
ice are on cellulose acetate base which means the 
films are non-inflammable. Both color films and 
black and white films may be had on loan. Sound 
films cannot be used on a silent projector. 



10 GUIDE TO AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS 



HOW FILMS MAY BE ORDERED 

Films may be ordered by mail, phone, telegraph 
or in person. Order blanks for convenience in 
ordering films have been prepared by the Service. 
The blanks may be had on request. 

Here are some suggestions which, if observed, 
will enable the Audio-Visual Aids Service to 
handle your order expeditiously. 

1. Order filmstrips, transcriptions, and tapes 
by the titles as they appear in our catalog. 
In the case of films indicate whether you 
want sound or silent, color or black and 
white films as sometimes the same title may 
be had in both versions. 

2. If you have alternate dates on which you can 
use the film or films, be sure to indicate them. 

3. Indicate clearly how long you want to use the 
film or films. 

4. Order films under one name where possible. 
For example, several teachers in the same 
building or in several buildings of the same 
system might order all their films under the 
principal's or the superintendent's name or 
the name of the director of teaching ma- 
terials. 

In general, films should be ordered as far in 
advance of the precise date of use as is possible. 
However, since we have a number of copies of 
many subjects, short notice requests are acknowl- 
edged promptly if at all possible. 

WHO MAY RECEIVE FILM SERVICE 

Any school — public, private, or parochial — in 
the continental United States is eligible to receive 
films on loan from the University, as well as any 
organization, church, club, union, or business in 
the continental United States. Films deposited in 
the library by the Civil Aeronautics Administration 
(marked CAA in the descriptions) may be mailed 
outside the United States. 

The films marked "TFC, Restricted to Class- 
room Use" are leased by the University and under 
the terms of the lease the films may be loaned only 
where they will be used as a part of regular instruc- 
tion. The cuttings from film classics based on 
literary classics (David Copperfield, Huckleberry 
Finn, etc.) can be loaned only for classroom use. 



USE OF PRODUCERS' FILM GUIDES 

Guides are shipped with films in some instances. 
The Audio- Visual Aids Service recommends that 
each school purchase the film guides wanted by the 
teachers direct from the film producer. The Audio- 
Visual Aids Service will gladly supply information 
to anyone as to availability of guides, names and 
addresses of producers and estimated costs of 
guides. 

GENERAL REGULATIONS 

1. Films and radio transcriptions are scheduled 
for one day's use only, unless a request is made for 
the use of the materials for a longer period of time. 
Please note that materials may be ordered for one 
week without extra charge. When permission is 
granted to hold films or radio transcriptions longer 
than one week, a fee for extra day's usage is 
charged in accordance with the extra day charge 
scale. 

2. All materials should be returned immediately 
after scheduled showing. Materials kept longer 
than the allotted time cause the Service embarass- 
ment and the next patron inconvenience. Films or 
radio transcriptions kept overtime are charged for 
at the regular single rental rates. Patrons are re- 
quested to give particular attention to the return 
of materials that may be in their possession on or 
immediately before holidays. 

3. Patrons are urged to be considerate of cancel- 
lations. Anticipation of scheduled holidays and 
careful planning of classroom work will help us to 
avoid withdrawing films from circulation for show- 
ing dates which will not be utilized by the patron 
booking the film. Cancellation cannot be made 
after the shipment has left the Audio-Visual Aids 
Service. All films which are reserved and not 
called for on the date specified will be charged as 
usual unless prior arrangement is made for can- 
cellation. 

4. Return shipping labels are sent with all ship- 
ments. Patrons are required to use these labels in 
returning materials to the Audio-Visual Aids 
Service. 

5. The patron is responsible for materials from 
the time such materials arrive until their return 
to the Audio-Visual Aids Service. The Service 
inspects all materials immediately after their re- 



GENERAL INFORMATION 11 



turn and maintains a record of the condition as 
received. Should any material be damaged when 
received by the patron, a report should be made 
immediately to the Audio-Visual Aids Service. 
Lost films will be charged to the patron at the rate 
of actual cost of replacement. 

PRACTICE FILMS 

Visual Aids will furnish practice films that you 
may retain in training operators. There will be a 
$1.00 charge for a 200- to 400-foot roll of film 
mounted on a reel. This charge includes postage. 

SERVICE CHARGES 

All films have service charges varying from 
postage only to as much as $20.00 in the case of 
several very expensive films. The service charge is 
given wtih each film description. 

A postage and insurance charge of $.15 per 
film will be added to all service charges (except 
in the case of films available for postage or hand- 
ling charges only, or in occasional cases where the 
sponsor of a film bears postage expense). The 
term "insurance" refers primarily to insurance 
against loss in the mails. It is therefore unneces- 
sary to insure return shipments, unless you so 
desire. 

For those films in our catalog which are listed 
for postage only, a minimum charge of $.50 will 
be made for each film. We are unable to keep 
postage accounts because of the costs involved. We 
shall be glad to ship those films without any addi- 
tional charge via express collect. Unless specified, 
such films will be sent parcel post and the mini- 
mum charge will apply. 

The service charge rates listed with the descrip- 
tions are for one to five day's use; or one school 
week. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays are not 
included. All films are scheduled for one day unless 
specifically requested for longer periods. 

For film use beyond the basic one- to five-day 
period, the following schedule of rates applies: If 
films are requested on a daily basis (i.e., one, two, 
or three days beyond the basic rental period) these 
charges are also the overtime charges that will be 
assessed for each day that films are held beyond 
scheduled use periods. Shipping time is not in- 
cluded. 



Service Charge Rates Extra Day Charges 

to $1.50 $ .35 

$1.51-$3.00 .60 

$3.01-$4.50 .80 

$4.51 up 1.00 

If films are requested on a weekly basis (i.e., one 
or two weeks beyond the basic rental period). 

One week beyond basic period 1.5 times the 

(Two total weeks' use) catalog rate 

Each additional week .5 times basic catalog rate 

For example, if a film is listed in the catalog as 
$1.50 for one to five days' use, the charge for seven 
school days would be $2.20 — $1.50 plus $.35 for 
each of two additional days. The film might, how- 
ever, be rented for two full weeks for $2.25; the 
basic rate of $1.50 times 1.5. 

Service charges are subject to change. We will 
make every effort to see that patrons are notified 
of changes, but cannot guarantee that such notifi- 
cation will reach all patrons before the changes 
become effective. 

In the event of postal rate increases, the postage 
and insurance charge will be raised to $.25. 

When requested, films will be spliced together on 
one reel for programs. Charges for this service is 
$.25 per film. 

CLUB PLANS 

Whatever your needs, you can now pay a flat 
rate for your entire film program and receive the 
same prompt, efficient service on all films. 

Following are our Club Plan rates. These Club 
rates are flat rates. There are no additional post- 
age, insurance or handling charges.

12 GUIDE TO AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS 



We will continue to use the regular producer's 
procedure of considering each 400 feet, or approxi- 
mately 11 minutes, of film as one reel. Fractions 
of reels will count as full reels; for example, both 
a 15 minute film and a 22 minute film will be con- 
sidered as two reels. Color will count double. If 
you wish to borrow deposited films which regularly 
have $1.00 handling charges, each will be classed 
as one reel, no matter what their length, or whether 
they are black and white or color. 

Compute the number of reels you will use, 
using our film guide or the H. W. Wilson Co. 
guide to determine running times and reel count. 
Then use the accompanying table to determine 
your full film cost for the year. 

If your needs fall between the figures listed in 
the table; for example, 52, 105, or 207 reels, the 
additional films will be pro-rated on a single reel 
basis. For example 100 reels are $135.00. This is 
$1.35 per reel. If your request totals 110 reels, the 
additional ten would be 10 x $1.35, or $13.50. 

You must subscribe in advance to this Club 
Plan. Payment, however, may be made when most 
convenient within the fiscal year. 

Also, if you wish to borrow a film which is 3 
reels color, and has a regular service charge of 
$5.20, it will be counted as 5 reels, not 6. This 
will prevent Club Plan patrons from losing on 
longer color films. 

The Club Plan cannot be used on tape record- 
ings, filmstrips, or on the several Disney films 
("Seal Island," etc.) in the library. 

CARTOONS 

You will find various cartoons listed through- 
out this catalog. New cartoons are constantly being 
added to the service. We can provide a program of 
cartoons to fit your requirements. 

NOON-HOUR MOVIES 

We can provide noon-hour movies of cartoons 
and shorts to fit your requirements. 

20 minute reel $2.35 

30 minute reel 3.35 

40 minute reel 4.35 

One hour (2 1200-ft. reels) 5.35 



CHRISTMAS FILMS 

You will find films for Christmas programs lo- 
cated throughout this catalog. The Visual Aids 
Service is constantly adding additional copies of 
existing Christmas films and also new releases. 
However, you are urged to order such films early. 
All Christmas films have a basic rental period of 
one day. The weekly rate is double the one-day 
rate. 

All Christmas films will be sent special delivery 
and you are requested to return them special 
delivery. Delay may disappoint others. 

PARCEL POST RATES 

Educational motion pictures may now be mailed 
at the same rate as formerly applied to books. 

If you are mailing films to the Visual Aids Serv- 
ice, or receiving films from the Service, the fol- 
lowing rates apply: 

1. Zones one, two, or three, or within the state 
in which mailed: 4 cents for the first pound, 1 
cent for each additional pound or fraction thereof. 
Packages must be marked "Sec. 34.84(e) P.L.&R." 

2. Anywhere in the United States, beyond the 
third zone, or beyond the state in which mailed: 
8 cents for the first pound, 4 cents for each addi- 
tional pound or fraction thereof. Packages must be 
marked "Sec. 34.84(h) P.L.&R." 

TV USAGE 

Most of the films in this Guide cannot be used 
for television purposes without the written permis- 
sion of the copyright owners. There are a few 
exceptions to this rule. Write us for a special listing 
of our films which may be televised. 

Our Confirmation form is shown on the next 
page. You receive one or more of these forms each* 
time you borrow materials from our library. MA- 
TERIALS SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED 
BOOKED UNTIL CONFIRMATIONS ARE 
RECEIVED, AND ALL CONFIRMATIONS 
SHOULD BE CHECKED CAREFULLY AND 
SAVED at least until the shipment has arrived, 
preferably until you have been invoiced for the 
materials. If you do not receive Confirmations

within ten days of placing your requests, please

The purpose of most of the features of this 
Confirmation are obvious to the casual observer. 
In the upper hand portion, to the left and right 
of the vertical line, are typed the title or titles, 
and rack-file numbers of materials ordered. Below 
this are placed the ship and use dates, below these 
is the patron's address. 

One or two features of the form are not as obvi- 
ous. The blocked-out area to the right of the place 
where titles are typed is where our typists put the 
amount of the service charge for the material. 
This is blocked out because of the fact that figures 
typed here sometimes were confused by post-office 
employees with street numbers, C.O.D. charges, 
special handling charges, etc. If you wish the 
amount of each service charge on your Confirma- 
tions, we shall be happy to write these charges in. 
It has not been found to be necessary very fre- 
quently in the past as patrons always receive item- 
ized statements of materials used and charges with 
invoices. 

The red number in the upper right corner of the 
form is the order number. IF THIS NUMBER IS 
REFERRED TO IN TELEPHONE CALLS OR 
CORRESPONDENCE, IT WILL MEAN A 
TREMENDOUS SAVING OF TIME FOR 
OUR OFFICE STAFF. All shipping tickets, in- 
voice tickets, and order labels are filed according 
to this number. 

Attention to these facts will result in better serv- 
ice for you. 



INDEX 

The classified index of films is being published 
separately from this descriptive listing. The in- 
creased size of the Visual Aids library and high 
printing costs have made publication of the cata- 
log quite expensive. The classified index by itself, 
however, can be printed fairly inexpensively. We 
can, therefore, furnish the index free of charge. 

This plan, we believe, will make it possible to 
furnish school systems with one or two copies of 
descriptive listings, and larger numbers of indexes. 
It will in this way enable school systems to make 
information on available films readily accessible to 
all teachers, at the same time keep expenses to a 
reasonable figure. 

Please contact us for the amount of additional 
indexes you need. 

POLICY ON LATE RETURNS 

Our shipping department has instructions to 
ship all materials at least one day ahead of sched- 
uled shipping dates. In the event some materials 
are held overtime by previous users, we will not 
cancel the order completely but will send the ma- 
terials late to the next patron. Use dates are to be 
changed on the order and plenty of time is to be 
allowed the next patron to make adequate use of 
the material. 

In this way, we hope to better serve our patrons. 
If complete cancellations are made, patrons are 
disappointed when it is then found that subjects 
are not available when reordered. 

If the materials sent to you are too late to be of 
use, please return them with a letter explaining 
that they could not be used. Charges will then be 
cancelled. We will of course not send materials 
late when they are for specific program dates. 

SHOULD FILMS BE RETURNED BY PARCEL POST 
OR EXPRESS? 

Parcel post charges for transporting films are 
much less than express charges. However, there is 
often some local reason which leads a patron to 
request that all shipments to and from the patron 
be made by express. All transportation charges are 
at the expense of the borrower. 



14 GUIDE TO AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS 



INDEX TO ABBREVIATIONS 

Film descriptions employ standard abbreviations 
as follows: 

general — Suitable for general audience use 
p — Suitable for primary grades 
i — - Suitable for elementary school use 
j — Suitable for junior high school use 
h — Suitable for senior high school use 
c — Suitable for college or university use 
a — Suitable for use with adults 
$0.00 — ■ Indicates the service fee for use of the 
film. See section dealing with terms of 
use and fees for further information. 

HOW TO READ FILM DESCRIPTIONS 

The film descriptions beginning on page 17 take 
the following form: 

GOOD SAMARITAN (RFA) 

The parable of Jesus, enacted by puppets, and 

adapted for children. . . „ . . 

p-i-j 14 minutes $5.00 

The abbreviation following the title of the film 
refers to the producer. A listing giving the full 
names of the producers is found on pages 559- 
569. If the film is in color or restricted to class- 
room use, it is so noted immediately after the 
abbreviation for the producer. 

The index to abbreviations listed in the preced- 
ing section refers to the audience of a particular 
film. These abbreviations are found in the bold 
line at the end of the listing, preceding the length 
of the film. In choosing a film, these audience ab- 
breviations should be closely checked to be sure 
that the film will appeal to the correct audience 
level.

ALLOY STEELS (USBM) 

The opening scene shows a toolsmith at work in an 
old-time shop using early methods of fashioning tools 
by hand. It also depicts the "cementation" process — 
making of blister bar steel by adding carbon to wrought 
iron, a process known by the ancients and rediscovered 
many years later by European workers. 

The scenes following portray outstanding milestones 
in the history of the development of alloy steels. The 
contributions of Benjamin Huntsman in 1742 and of 
Robert Mushet in 1868, as well as the improved method 
of heat treatment first used in 1890 which made pos- 
sible the development of cutting tools that ran at the 
unheard-of speed of 100 to 150 feet per minute, are 
shown. Within a few years many brands of high-speed 
steels were on the market, Julius Baur's chromium 
steel was patented, Sir Robert Hadfield perfected a 
high-manganese steel, French metallurgists first alloyed 
steel with nickel, and molybdenum and vanadium had 
come into use. 

Many brands of English and American steels made 
their appearance between 1900 and 1906 as automobiles 
created a need for strong and more reliable steel. The 
increases in source of supply together with laboratory 
improvements and research during the period of 1917 
and 1938 are shown in detail. The reel ends with a 
view of modern plants and equipment for heat treating 
and fabrication of steel.

people in animal land build their dikes higher and

and his logs to himself. When the flood comes, they 
all flee to the hill; except the selfish one, who thinks 
he can ride out the flood alone in his house. The 
house upsets and he is drowned, but the rest of the 
inhabitants of animal land are safe.

ANIMATED CARTOONS: THE TOY THAT 

GREW UP (AFF) 

Although magic lanterns had been in vogue for 
many years, it was not until the invention of a child's 
toy that another step was taken towards today's motion 
pictures. The film shows how that toy, called the 
"traumatrope," led the Belgian physicist, Joseph 
Plateau, to study a characteristic of the human eye 
called "the persistence of vision." Plateau used this 
scientific fact to make up a machine that seemed to 
animate static drawings. Emil Reynaud developed 
Plateau's machine further and was the first to show 
animated cartoons. Reynaud perfected his machine, 
the "Praxinxoscope," to such a degree that with it he 
could put on a real theatrical performance lasting a 
full quarter of an hour. The animated cartoons of 
Reynaud, of which one complete story is shown in the 
film, are as full of fantasy and almost as precise as 
the product of today's animation studios.

GETTING READY EMOTIONALLY (C) 

Most of the time in school we know where we stand, 
what we can and can't do. Emotional demands on us 
are not great. In the service, there are many new emo- 



tional demands. Education is for killing — repugnant 

to most of us. There is the problem of homesickness, 

and the problem of taking orders. We can't just go 

home when we want to. It will be much easier if we 

take stock of ourselves now - — ■ what our weaknesses are, 

where we need the most self-discipline — and begin to 

work to overcome those weaknesses before we enter 

service. , „„ ._ _„

It is very easy to accept everybody else's standards, 
but in the end you must live with your own. Film is

AROUND THE CORNER (JH) 

Deals in interesting fashion with the difficult prob- 
lem of making clear the operation of the automobile 
differential. We see that it is possible for wagon wheels 
to travel at different speeds because each one can turn 
freely on the axles. 

Early automobiles are seen operating this way, en- 
countering difficulty since only one wheel was driven 



by the engine and thus was not always able to get 
enough grip on the road. Engineers had to find a way 
to connect both rear wheels to the engine without 
sliding and slipping on turns. The solution was the 
differential. 

In a step-by-step demonstration a simple differential 
is built up, showing its exact operation in an under-

the time for emergence approaches, they go nearer 
the earth's surface, where they dig little tubes and 
await the Great Day. The emerged insect is shown with 
its soft white body, which hardens gradually into a 
new black outer skeleton. The female bores holes in 
bark and twigs and deposits eggs. The eggs hatch and 
the young insect burrows into the ground for its 1 7-year 
wait. The film ends with a series of dates: 1953-1970- 
1987 — the years when the locusts will again emerge.

CITY OF LITTLE MEN

A pictured account of the work of Father Flanagan

A number of years ago, in Omaha, he dreamed of

With $90.00 in funds, he rents a house, and soon has 
thirty boys in his care. A larger and better building 
is secured. Still without facilities for play, he de- 
termines on a place in the country, and so, twenty 
years ago, Boys Town came into existence. 



The varied activities of the inhabitants of Boys 
Town are pictured. A bugle call, at the raising of the 
flag each morning, awakens them. Dairying, farming, 
shoe repairing and carpentering are some of the activi- 
ties — of which each boy makes his own selection. The 
town is largely self-supporting, through the sale of 
surplus commodities.

much too irritable. Yet exercise and participation in

FACE BEHIND THE MASK, THE 

(TFC, Restricted to Classroom Use) 

The story of a mysterious man who spent his life 
in prison at the order of Louis XIV. 

The king's power was absolute and there was no 
recourse for the prisoner who, masked in velvet and 
blindfolded, was rowed to the island fortress of Ste. 
Marguerite. A metal mask, cunningly made, was placed 
over his head. 

Forty years later, the prisoner was removed to the 
Bastille where he died. Many books theorizing as to his 
identity have been written. There seem to be three 
probable solutions. 

One, that he was Count Matioli, an Italian who 
sold France secret information, but resold it to Spain 
and Venice. Or that he might be Forquet, treasurer of 
France and richest man in the world, who sought the 
aid of the king's mistress in a try for more power. Or, 
finally, that Louis XIV did have a twin, as rumor 
claimed, and that the twin was imprisoned so that the 
king's power could not be threatened. 

The narrator closes the story with the comment that 
this man has become the symbol of millions of persons 
seized and imprisoned without trials; that his fate was 
pointed to by later generations in their fight for trial

of the continent. The railroads which run alongside 
the canals, loading and unloading activities at inland

FAMILIES FIRST (NYSYC) 

The film, which is documentary and contrasting, is 
a recording of human interest in the everyday affairs 
of America's most important social unit — the family. 
Throughout the production, the family is in evidence 
as the major influence — for good or for bad — in the 
character growth of the child. A dual sequence in the 
forming of family patterns — the sharing and the non- 
sharing — results in situations arousing amusement, 
sympathy, and concern.

to eat, and suffer from disease and famine. The com- 
mon farmer has only a few crude tools with which

parts of the country. And equally fortunate, France has 
within its borders many areas of fertile land. Hence 
France can feed the people of Paris and the rest of

News Magazine of the Screen 
and American Film Fornm 



Is your school taking full advantage of its opportunities in the fields of mod- 
ern history, current events, political science? Two film series, THE NEWS 
MAGAZINE OF THE SCREEN and the AMERICAN FILM FORUM, are excellent tools 
for the enrichment of the school curriculum in those areas. 

THE NEWS MAGAZINE OF THE SCREEN is a monthly 20-minute summary 
of the important news events of the month, plus feature stories of handicrafts, 
art, science, and many others. It is sponsored for Illinois schools by the Stand- 
ard Oil Company of Indiana. 

One of the outstanding features is the "American Heritage" series detailing 
persons, events and places that have played a large part in the growth of 
American life. This feature, in February, 1 954, received one of three gold 
George Washington Honor Medals from the Freedom Foundation for "outstand- 
ing contributions to a better understanding of the American Way of Life." 

AMERICAN FILM FORUM is also a monthly series in which a specific issue 
of importance to the American people is discussed by persons in public life who 
are informed on the issues. Some example titles have been: "Should Senate 
Debate be Limited?" "Should American Tariffs be Lowered?" and "Is Fighting 
Communism Periling Civil Rights?" In all cases great care is taken that all 
sides of issues be presented. Some of the persons appearing have been former 
Senator Harry Cain of Washington, Senator Paul Douglas of Illinois, and former 
Representative Fred Hartley, Jr., co-author of the Taft-Hartley Law. 

Prices on these two series are : 

NEWS MAGAZINE OF THE SCREEN $9.00 per year, for 9 issues. Indi- 
vidual issues may be borrowed for $1.00 each after the month in which they 
are current. 

AMERICAN FILM FORUM For the current year, 9 issues for $36.00 

One year after issue, 9 issues for $20.00 
Second year after issue, 9 issues for $15.00 
Third year after issue, 9 issues for $9.00 

Individual issues for the current year are $7.50. Individual issues for pre- 
vious years are one-ninth of the rate for the entire block. 

Each year a new set of 9 issues will be produced. The rate for current issues 
applies to that particular year, and the sliding scale goes into operation for each 
set in the year following their release. 

These features are "bicycled" on circuits; that is, one school uses the film 
and sends it on to the next school on the schedule which is mailed with each 
print, rather than being returned to Visual Aids. For this reason we ask that 
patrons be especially careful in projection as we are unable to inspect and 
repair the film where necessary after each showing as we can with regular 
schedulings. 



School Projectionists of Illinois 



One of the activities promoted and encouraged 
by the Audio-Visual Aids Service is the School Pro- 
jectionists' Club of Illinois. This Club is statewide 
in its membership and includes students in grade 
schools, junior high schools, and high schools who 
regularly act as projectionists for showings of films 
or filmstrips, or operators of tape recording equip- 
ment. 

The reproductions on this page show the mem- 
bership card which all qualified projectionists 
receive. 

The certification of projectionists is left to the 
discretion of the school's audio-visual administrator. 
He judges the qualifications of his group of pro- 
jectionists, and requests blank cards for as many 
as he wishes to certify. These cards, after being 
filled out, are returned to the Audio-Visual Aids 
Service, and are signed by the Supervisor of Audio- 
Visual Aids, University of Illinois. They are then 
returned to the school for distribution. 

A number of schools award projectionists' letters 
on the same basis as that on which athletic and 
other activity letters are awarded. 

We feel that this statewide participation gives 
students a feeling of unity and responsibility not 
easily achieved otherwise. 

The Visual Aids Service also holds, early in the 
fall, a projectionists' clinic, in which experts from 
a number of projector manufacturing companies 
demonstrate the operation of their machines, and 
lectures on techniques are given. 

Some excellent training handbooks are avail- 
able, among them : 

THE AUDIO-VISUAL HANDBOOK, by Ellsworth C. 
Dent, published by the Society for Visual Education, 
Inc., 1345 West Diversey Parkway, Chicago 14, III. 

THE EFLA REDBOOK OF AUDIO-VISUAL EQUIP- 
MENT, published by the Educational Film Library 
Association, 345 East 46th Street, New York 17, 
N.Y. 

Individual projector manufacturing companies 
also publish valuable handbooks to their own 
equipment.

FREE AIR (JH) 

Free air deals mainly with oxidation — the burning 
of fuel — in the internal combustion gasoline engine. 
We are shown that oxidation is the combination of 
oxygen with another substance, and that in the pres- 
ence of enough oxygen even steel shavings will burn. 
The explosions which take place in the combustion 
chamber of the engine are shown to be a rapid com-

to carry back, at the Belgian government's request, the 
coffin of a man named Joseph Damien de Veuster. 

The scene shifts to March 19, 1864, when four young 
priests arrive in Hawaii to serve as missionaries. De 
Veuster, best known as Father Damien, ministers to 
his parish while each week a boatload of lepers is 
taken to Molokai. The Hawaiian government issues a 
decree to the effect that all non-lepers must leave 
Molokai immediately or remain forever. 

Father Damien goes to the leper isle. For ten desper- 
ate years he labors. He digs their graves, builds new 
houses, and pipes in fresh water. But only a handful 
attend his chapel. One day, as he soaks his feet in a 
basin of hot water, he is shocked to discover that one 



foot cannot feel the hot water, and he realizes that he, 
too, is a leper. That Sunday he greets his flock with 
the words, "we lepers." The news is flashed throughout 
Molokai that Father Damien is one of them.

ethnic ties, river lowlands tend to maintain their cul- 
tural homogeneity for long periods of time. In Papa 
Paradis and his family, who live in the village of 
St. Pierre, and are the central characters in this film 
story, the picture demonstrates how these principles 
operate in French Canada. The lower St. Lawrence 
River is wide and navigable, with fertile land on both 
sides. Farm life in this valley reflects the influence of 
French culture. The cool, moist climate is good for 
dairying. Nearby cities such as Quebec and Montreal 
help to make this type of occupation profitable.

HORSEMEN OF THE PAMPAS —ARGENTINA

Except for the soft, musical Spanish language you

strange baggy trousers, you have the impression that 
you are on a great Texas ranch. Throughout these 
scenes of people of the Pampas there is an ever-mount- 
ing impression of the vastness of this level, stoneless 
and nearly treeless plain. This high, grass-covered 
plateau is especially suited to grazing operations. 
There is an inescapable picture of the Great Plain's 
influence upon its people and its impact upon an 

entire nation. „ _

HORSEPOWER (JH) 

In this picture we learn what is meant by the term 
horsepower, how it originated, and how it applies to 
the automobile. 

We go back to the days of James Watt in 1769 
when he conducted a series of experiments to show 
just how much weight a horse could be expected to 
lift in a given length of time. The horsepower unit was 
used by Watt to determine the amount of work that 
could be expected from his steam pump in comparison 
with horse operated pumps. Today the efficiency of 
all machinery is measured by these units. 

Feature by feature, part by part, cylinder by cylin- 
der, the film shows how the horsepower of automobile 
engines has been increased.

HOT-HEAD, THE (JH) 

This picture deals, in the main, with problems of 
efficient fuel combustion in the automobile. Actual 
laboratory tests show the results of complete and in- 
complete burning of carbon. And we are shown how 
engine design influences the combustion efficiency. 
The film shows that, in the automobile, efficient burn- 
ing of gasoline is produced by "breaking" the liquid 
into tiny drops completely surrounded by air. 

The four stroke cycle principle of the internal 
combustion engine is explained. Explained also is the 
valve-in-head engine design which is shown to be one 
way of producing greater combustion efficiency and 
reducing power waste. 

Animated drawings and cutaway pictures show how 

the fuel mixture flows into the combustion, how the 

removal of gases is effected, and how fuel mixture can 

be controlled. . , «. A< __

The Role of 

AUDIO-VISUAL MATERIALS 

in General Education 



by EDGAR DALE 

ADDRESS DELIVERED AT STEPHENS COLLEGE AUDIO-VISUAL CONFERENCE, 1951 

Used by special permission of 

Dr. Edgar Dale, Ohio State University 



If you read the speeches of college presidents you will find that they have 
come out four-square, unequivocally for a broad education and against a nar- 
row education. They are for general education and are against a highly 
specialized or specific education. They are against vocationalism and for an 
education that is good for everybody. 

I am for these things too, even though I'm not sure what they mean. You 
are for them and maybe you know what they mean. But I submit that we are 
not reaching this kind of objective in much of our college teaching. Maybe 
we can't. Maybe we are trying to bite off more than we can chew. At any 
rate I'd like to discuss the problem of general education and see if there isn't 
some way in which films or drama or radio or similar audio-visual materials 
can make some significant and noteworthy educational contribution. 

If we analyze the various plans for general education, you see that basi- 
cally their differences often lie in the kind of subject matter alleged as good 
for general education. Sometimes it is argued that it doesn't matter what you 
teach, it's how you teach it. . . . This is at best a half-truth. 

Let us see if we can get some meaning out of the word GENERAL. Too 
often it has been mistakenly used as meaning NOT SPECIFIC. Yet a general 
education that is not specific is no more possible than being a man before 
you have been a boy. Ditto for girls and women. 

Specificity and generality are little boys and big men. We often hear state- 
ments saying that we want to get away from hundreds of specifics. There is 
only one way educationally to do this. You cannot do it by throwing away 



DESCRIPTION OF SOUND FILMS 221 



specifics or concreteness or illustration. The only way to move away from 
specifics is to move them into generalizations. As William James once said: 
"We can only see as far into a generalization as our knowledge of its details 
extends." 

This too is a generalization that needs qualification. You do not merely 
start with specificity and then expect that at some later date specificity will 
mechanically move into generality. Actually what we are trying to do is to 
deal with specifics (the only thing out of which meaning can come) in an 
atmosphere or mood of generalization. 

We are all against the teaching of unrelated specifics, but specifics do not 
become related because we say we are teaching or developing generalizations. 
Specifics become fruitful generalizations because we make them so, because we 
purposely plan and work for generalization . . . 

In one sense the scholar staking out a small area for depth analysis gets a 
kind of "king's acts" from present day application. But the teacher of general 
education gets no such exemption. What is taught must either be related to 
the present day interest at some phase or other or it will be unused and this 
means that eventually it will be forgotten . . . 

We cannot master generalizations in the same way that we can master 
specifics. Indeed, that's a good test of whether it's an important generality. A 
little vocational trick can be easily mastered because it is usually quite con- 
crete and specific. You can quickly learn to tie a knot in a certain way or do a 
repetitive operation as in a factory. The beginning and end of the process is 
at hand, visible. It is a closed experience as far as one's responsibility is 
concerned. 

But the difference between the specific and the general is that the general 
is always an open-ended, never closed event. It always has a growing edge. 
We might better speak of generalizing rather than generalization since it is a 
process rather than an end product which we are after. It is education in gen- 
eralizing that we are working for. 

The difference, then, between a narrow and a broad education is that in a 
narrow education you get things over with. You finish with them. You cir- 
cumscribe and delimit the range of connections with other life experience . . . 

You cannot just add specifics to get a generalization. You must integrate 
them, put them into a pattern, reconstruct them. It's like the fellow who said 
that he could read the words all right but the sentences bothered him a lot. 

Specificity is important. It is not antithetical to general education. It is 
corrollary and anterior to it. The fact that an experience is a narrow one at 
this time is not unfavorable as far as later generalization is concerned. The 
issue is the dynamic quality of the experience itself. Is narrowness moving into 
broadness, is specificity moving toward generality? These are the questions we 
must ask. 

I want to make a second point that it is only through your own generaliz- 
ing that you get generalizations. You must grow your own. I'm not too certain 
how systematically we can grow these generalizations. Certainly I would try to 
do it as systematically and logically as I could knowing that when we deal 
with large classes, we cannot follow theories of learning which might apply 
only if we had individual tutors.

My basic thesis then is that far, far too often we have contented ourselves 
with merely having our students memorize the quite specific facts and verbal 
generalizations in textbooks . . . 

There has been a good deal of discussion about orientation as a part of 
general education. We try to orient students to the problems of the world — 
give them a general view, we say. But what has been the history of such 
courses? Many of them like Powder River in Montana have been a mile wide 
and a foot deep. They do not orient, they are forgotten . . . 

Certain so-called broad courses have been unsuccessful because they have 
attempted to cover the ground when we should be uncovering it. They have 
merchandised high-level abstractions and generalizations which could not be 
understood by the students. We can, of course, go to the opposite extreme and 
think that we ought to spend all of our time uncovering ground at one spot 
and cover no other ground. This is generalizing in depth. We must also have 
generalizing in breadth. Some kind of balance is necessary. But in any case, 
we must uncover enough ground to develop significant generalizations in any 
study. Otherwise there is no product because there has been no process . . . 

My proposal basically is the introduction of increasing amounts of concrete 
material at the interest level of the learner. Further, that these materials be 
introduced primarily with the idea of teaching how to generalize with skill, as 
subject matter for building generalizations . . . 

How can we get students to do disciplined generalizing? Oftentimes move- 
ments come up out of the lower schools which have significance for higher 
education. The core-curriculum is one. I would like to propose a kind of co- 
relative curriculum to be set down inside present subject matter arrangements, 
a kind of interstitial education. 

The pattern for it should be something like this. In our university, for 
example, we are now giving a seminar on communications. Professors from 
sociology, journalism, radio, audio-visual education, and political science are 
working together on it. It is an excellent idea but expensive. The same co- 
relating experiences can be developed if we use films and other media to help 
solve the big important problems in American life. 

To solve these problems we must also use the subject matter we are learn- 
ing in the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years. It represents 
vertical division of subject matter and we also need an horizontal cut-across. 
Courses such as those in marriage at Stephens are a case in point. The mar- 
riage courses not only use data gathered from subject-matter areas — facts, 
generalizations, if you please, but give further point of historical, biological, 
psychological generalizations by using them in a new and important problem- 
solving situation. As you know, a wide range of films and records is now 
available for such courses. 

Let us think, then, of a college which is organized in large part on a subject- 
matter basis. This is good on the whole, and I see no significant change oc- 
curring in this pattern for a long, long time. But it is possible, it seems to me, 
to take certain over-arching problems — problems of living — and use them 
both preceding and following the studies of subject-matter, depending upon 
the level of generalization sought. 

To teach in these problem fields requires a cluster of quite concrete and 
semi-concrete experiences. It requires a variety of teaching materials including 



DESCRIPTION OF SOUND FILMS 223 



charts, maps, graphs, models, exhibits, field trips, recordings, filmstrips, and 
motion pictures, plays, socio-drama. 

This is the stuff out of which generalization is made. These beads of expe- 
rience must be strung together on some hypothesis, some purpose, in order to 
give them lasting meaning. There must be generalizing. 

Let us take an area which has great possibilities for what I shall call inter- 
stitial education. I refer to the field of mental health. I have here a report of 
"The National Association for Mental Health." It lists 45 films dealing with 
mental health. I note that only one of these films was produced before 1940. 
The great bulk of them were developed after 1945. 

Now BOOKS on mental health are important as a part of general educa- 
tion. They must be used. Books represent the intellectual deposit of specific 
experiences which have been moved into important generalizations. Yet, books 
alone are not enough. They lack the specificity, the warmth, indeed some of 
the unutterable poignancy of concrete experiences. 

Through audio-visual materials, we can supply the bases for sound 
generalizing . . . 

In our zest for general education, we must not forget that when you read 
you put meaning INTO the printed page and those words can only be re- 
minders of experiences we have had or that other people have had. Unless 
these words have the warmth and richness of a letter from home, they aren't 
going to convey much meaning. Do you think your graduates, your seniors 
have "mastered" the generalization that the way to make good human relations 
is to understand what makes you tick and what makes the other fellow tick 
. . . gain an understanding of the genetic development of people — what has 
happened to them at some point to make them like they are? Someone once 
said: "We need reminding more than we need instructing." 

Actually most teachers — and I am afraid most college graduates — fail to 
look at human behavior longitudinally with a time sense. We expect the 
Chinese and Indians to be like us and when they're not we're hurt and sur- 
prised. We forget how people behave when they have been hungry most of 
their lives . . . 

Let me go a little further in this business of mental health or human 
relations. Let us look at the stage play as audio-visual material. Let us see 
what its role is in the instructional educational program of the college. 

I wonder if you saw "The Death of a Salesman"? An excellent playwright, 
Arthur Miller, dealt here with a profound generalization through the medium 
of a man and his problems. Willy Loman, according to his son, Biff, didn't 
know who he was. Worse still and perhaps because of it, he lied to himself. 
He lied to himself in order that he might get the emotional security which his 
job didn't give him. Actually Willy was much better at making things than he 
was at selling. Maybe he was on the wrong job. 

Now this is the generalizing I did in reference to this quite concrete, quite 
specific play. It would be interesting to sit down with other persons and get 
the benefit of their generalizing. We might even secure a generalization like 
the one from the man who said, "It's easy to see why Willy Loman failed, 
New England always was lousy territory." Are your students generalizing about 
the Ox-bow Incident? About Pinky? 



224 GUIDE TO AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS 



Let's turn to an entirely different area. The teaching of history. One of the 
objectives in the teaching of history is the generalization of the continuity 
of history . . . 

I am always struck by the fact that in teaching history we are trying to get 
youngsters to remember things that happened hundreds and thousands of years 
ago when many of them cannot easily remember what happened in the last 
10 years. This means since they were 8 years to 12 years old, if they are col- 
lege students. We must, therefore, by motion picture, by drama and exhibit, 
and by other means reconstruct the past. You can't generalize about the past 
unless you can reconstruct it. 

Sometimes we can physically reconstruct an entire colonial village of about 
1500 population as at Williamsburg, Virginia. If they can afford it, your stu- 
dents can go there and see what life was like in a fairly prosperous colonial 
community. They will generalize, probably with some amazement that the 
furniture, the china, the wallpaper, the architecture, will in many cases show 
more taste and discrimination than we have today. It was a gracious living 
based in part on slave labor. Some say, of course quite ungraciously, that we 
modern Americans have the objections I hear once in a while to a program 
like lived well at the expense of Chile, Iran, China. This is another 
generalization. 

If we want to reconstruct the last 50 years we can see it in a film titled 
"Fifty Years Before Your Eyes." Two other films have attempted to do the 
same job. They run about an hour. No history teacher can teach as much 
history as does this film in that period of time. 

One can also turn to recordings as a way of reconstructing history. We may 
listen to Ed Murrow's program on Friday and hear the voice of the week. We 
can turn to his recordings "I Can Hear It Now," and hear history in the 
making. We can use filmstrips enabling us to study older documents . . . 

We might see a film like "The World Is Rich." We need to study world 
population problems and try to figure out what will happen if we increase the 
world food supply but do not limit the population. 

Have I given you enough concrete examples so that you can generalize 
my points? I hope so. Do you see anything wrong with this program? One of 
the ones I have suggested is that it will make education easy. Presumably then 
one would not want to take the students visually by an Encyclopaedia Britan- 
nica film to ancient Rome because it would then be easier to understand how 
people lived. Let us follow this argument a little further. If such semi-concrete 
film experience is bad because it is easy, then to study this history of Greece it 
would be even worse to have students go to Greece for first-hand study because 
to do so would make many ideas clear and concrete which would otherwise be 
bookish, academic, and unreal. Workers in the audio-visual field are not trying 
to make education easy, we are trying to make it clear, effective. Could anyone 
conceivably object to a motion picture taken through a microscope which 
shows actual cell division in the life cycle of a frog? The film makes quite 
clear what cell division is. But if we are trying to make our subjects hard, why 
not adopt some really novel procedures. Let's blindfold students and not let 
them see the demonstrations in front of the class. 



DESCRIPTION OF SOUND FILMS 225 



Many of you are saying in reference to the introduction of more concrete 
experience, "But isn't that what we have been doing?" Yes, I think it is — if 
you are excellent teachers. However, the administrative job of getting and 
using concrete materials whether experiments in zoology, reproductions of 
historical documents, seeing excellent plays, making good charts and graphs, 
is no simple one. Just as we have had to have a library to keep track of our 
books and magazines, to make them available when needed, so too, we must 
have an administrative arrangement for the selection, procurement, classi- 
fication, distribution, evaluation, and upkeep of audio-visual materials. 

There is also the big job of re-education of some faculty members in the 
art of discussion, helping students generalize skillfully. Many do not know how 
to use these new materials. 

May I say in conclusion that there are two ways of getting sound, thought- 
ful, vigorous generalizing — which is what general education is. We can get it 
in a somewhat formal way through courses. Courses laid out, not primarily in 
terms of problems to be solved, but rather as a way of getting directly ac- 
quainted with the ideas in such fields as geology, chemistry, history, mathe- 
matics and the like. 

I'm not unduly critical of this kind of division. Physics is a subject, a 
science because the stuff of which it is made, its generalizations, fit together 
logically. 

But the logic, the maturity of mind necessary to move these generalizations 
into a common core may be quite fitting for a mature person but not neces- 
sarily for an immature one. 

Will these interstitial courses work? Yes, if they are well taught. They must 
be well taught because their deficiencies are much more readily seen than 
some deficiencies in the old established courses. Usually in the fields that cut 
across subject matter lines, there is no neat logical set of material laid out for 
the student and I emphasize laid out. He must, in a sense, chart his own 
growth and development. This is, unfortunately, so much like life itself that 
we tend to ignore such approaches and shift back to the less life-like but more 
easily recognized and administered regular courses. 

We are always expecting some miraculous cure for the ills of education. 
We expect a change like the woman who took the wonderful medicine, Hada- 
col. In her testimonial she said, "Since taking this new drug, I'm a different 
woman. Needless to say, my husband is delighted." There is no miraculous 
cure like this in store for us by introducing more concrete experiences through 
audio-visual materials. But it can help us use the only method there is for 
getting a general education . . . generalizing.

ISLAND NATION — JAPAN (UW) 

Living is difficult in an area where farmland and 
other natural resources are limited; but by working 
hard and by developing industry densely populated 
countries can overcome some of their difficulties. This 
film shows us that no country illustrates this geographic 
principle better than Japan. We see what this country 
of 80,000,000 people, handicapped by mountainous 
terrain, and without the necessary raw materials for 
industrial development has done to overcome her diffi- 
culties. Industry is based on the importation of raw 
materials, and the selling of finished products through- 
out the world, made possible, particularly through low 
wages and long hours of work. In rural regions, too, 
people work long and hard to gain a livelihood from

IT CAN'T LAST (OWI) 

The scenario for this film was written for the United

Archibald MacLeish. The story the film tells is one 
which points out with kindly irony that precisely be- 
cause the last battle of the war seems almost in sight, 
we must fight, work and save even harder. The last 
blow in the fight is one that makes the decision stick. 
Mr. MacLeish's story also points out that it's as hard 



to die at the end of the war as at the beginning ■ 

be even harder. , „„ _,, „_

JUSTICE UNDER LAW 

(TFC, Restricted to Classroom Use) 

Filmed in documentary style, this excerpted version 
of a feature photoplay vividly emphasizes the ideal of 
justice under American law and shows a true case in 
which a prosecuting attorney fulfilled his duty to pro- 
tect the innocent as well as to punish the guilty. The 
film also stresses the importance of weighing evidence 
carefully to prevent mob hysteria and protect the Indi- 
vidual's Constitutional rights. 

In simple and direct fashion the film tells the story 
of the murder of a beloved clergyman. Public outrage 
at the brutal crime demands quick arrest and punish- 
ment of the killer. A suspect is picked up in the police 
dragnet, and seven witnesses identify him as the mur- 
derer. Ballistics experts state that the bullet taken from 
the body of the victim was fired from the revolver 
found in possession of the suspect. To all intents and 
purposes, it was "an open and shut case." 

Interesting sequences depict the working of legal 
machinery in such a case, including the police investi- 
gations and line-up of suspects, the coroner's hearing 
and the arraignment. 

When the prosecutor appears at the arraignment, 
he dumbfounds the court by entering a plea of inno- 
cent for the suspect. He proceeds to disprove each 
piece of evidence which seemed to doom the man to 
conviction. The adherence of the prosecutor to the 
ideal of his office frees an innocent man and provides 
a reassurance of faith in American justice.

KING WITHOUT A CROWN 

(TFC, Restricted to Classroom Use) 

In 1793, in Paris, the people are demanding the 
life of the king. He is guillotined and his son becomes 
Louis XVII, a king without a crown or throne. He 
is taken from his mother to be used as a pawn in 
bargaining. Disease is said to have caused his death, 
but doubt is expressed by many. 

Fifty years later, a prince, the son of Louis Phillipe, 
appears in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He summons a priest, 
Eleazar Williams, who he has reason to think is Louis 
XVII. Williams was born of an Indian mother, he says. 
The prince's theory is then pictured. 

The dauphin's place in a prison cell was taken by 
a sickly peasant boy and dauphin spirited away to 
America where he was left in the care of Indians. The 
prince now tells Williams that he is the son of King 
Louis XVI and requests his written abdication to fore- 
stall those who would still try to put him on the 
throne. Williams refuses this since he would be signing 
away the rights of his own son. 

Later we see the aged sister of the lost dauphin 

reading an account of his claim published by Williams. 

She demands the truth from the son of Louis Phillipe 

who tells her that the story is an hallucination on 

Williams' part. . , „- -,., __

LAFAYETTE, CHAMPION OF LIBERTY (ACFC) 
Pictures the colonies, in the year 1777, at war 
with England. Then, in a room in France, several 
men are talking. One of them, Gilbert de Motier, better 
known as Marquis de Lafayette, speaks of his admira- 
tion for the American colonists and his own love of 
liberty. He wishes to join them and make their fight 
his own. However, he doubts that the King of France 
will give his permission. 

De Motier flees in disguise to a Channel port, evad- 
ing the King's men sent to stop him. He takes passage 
on the first ship sailing, and lands at Charleston. From 
there he makes the long trip to Philadelphia to offer 
his services to the Continental Congress. Refused ad- 
mittance at the door, he appeals by letter directly to 
Washington. 

Sent for by Washington, he offers his services and 
five million francs from his own fortune. Washington 
replies that the most he may offer the Marquis de 
Lafayette in return is a commission as brigadier gen- 
eral. Lafayette's greatest aid to the cause was at Valley 
Forge. He and Washington discuss the plight of their

LAND BEHIND THE DIKES — HOLLAND (UW) 
In low lands by the sea, it is possible to enlarge 
farming areas by draining off the water and reclaiming 
the land. Small, densely populated countries have 
found this practice to be advantageous. In this picture, 
we study how these principles apply to the Nether- 
lands, a low country, nearly half of whose area is below 
sea level. Dutch people have been working for hun- 
dreds of years making new land by draining swamps, 
shallow lakes, and even the sea itself. The reclaimed 
land, known as Polderland, is very productive. Farm 
products often move to market by boat on the canals. 
The land has been drained by dikes, canals and wind- 
mills. Today, modern pumping stations are replacing 
the more picturesque windmills. The work of draining 
the land is still going on.

(C, B&W or Color) 

The main objectives of this film are to motivate in- 
terest in creative water color painting, to motivate 
careful use of water color equipment, and to illustrate

with the bad results that come when the correct ways 
are not used. Children will see the benefits of organ- 
izing their work, keeping their paints and paint-trays 
clean, of changing paint water and taking care of their 
brushes. Three basic techniques for achieving different

LET'S PLAY SAFE (POR, Color) 

Combining live photography and animation this 
film shows school children on the playground. Six

ous situations developing. Just as it appears that some- 
one will get hurt the action is stopped, and animated 
characters show what might happen. Then the children 
are given opportunity to repeat their performances, 
but to correct their attitudes and do it safely. 

The unique device of switching from live photog- 
raphy to amusing animation to show dangerous situa- 
tions, the easily remembered names of the six offenders, 
and the positive approach throughout should make this 
film very effective for motivating an interest in safety 
on the playground, especially on the intermediate grade
